Coucou Bar is strategically located at the center of Sta Fe Bantayan Island. Just few minutes walk from the public market and church. The place offers a good place to stay and dine. But during our visit flies are just hovering everywhere especially over our food. Im not sure where those flying creatures come from since the place looks really...

I booked our three night stay direct with CouCou lodge by email and communication was clear and prompt – in fact all the staff were very welcoming, friendly and helpful. Our room (superior) was clean, linen was changed daily (patched & a little worn), and included a safe (no batteries as the safe key is on the fob with the...

The rooms are good, no problem with AC or hot shower. Slow internet but this is the norm for Bantayan. I have to agree with other reviewers that most of the staff need to cheer up. I stood at the bar with about 3 pinays right in front of me chatting instead of asking what I would like. I eventually...

The title says it all. We felt like we were not welcome at the restaurant. No smiles, no hospitality. We had to find seats ourselves and we had to request for everything. It's like they don't have a sense of initiating things for customers. Sure, we were a bunch of young cousins and all, but we can afford the things...

Restaurant area and beach are very close. Rooms reasonably priced. Quiet garden connected to the rooms. Good food and service in a cosy restaurant, especially the breakfast. Minor things like difficult lock to the room was quickly fixed. No batteries in safety deposit box. It would also be nice with a water cooker in the room. I can recommend this...

We didn't stay here, only went here for dinner two times during our stay in Sta Fe. The service was very slow both times, we waited for over an hour for the food, as they refused to serve any snack or appetiser while waiting we bought nuts across the road and ate. The food, when it is actually served, is...

The trip was unplanned, so most of the more popular resorts in the area were booked. We decided to give Coucou a try. They responded promptly, and we reserved a room for that same day. They offered free pickup from the port when we arrived early evening. As title says, it's not a beachfront property, but you can't really find...
